Selecting your supervisor

In corporate programmes, a small group of supervisors (or just one) is usually appointed. If, however, you find you need to select your own supervisor, the following advice may be helpful:

  • Be clear what kind of supervision you are looking for (e.g. individual or group? With an emphasis on a particular psychological approach?) and look for a supervisor with that experience or background
  • Write a “job description” for what you want to achieve from the relationship
  • If you are looking for professional supervision, make sure they are genuinely qualified and not just a peer coach with more experience!
  • Look for someone, who will challenge you and help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself as a coach (and as a person)
  • Look for someone you will be able to be honest with
